Hello friends. I’m very pleased to announce the wheels are turning on record number 4. It will be called Dreamweaver and will be filled with honest, soft and melodic offerings. The material will be written by yours truly with the assistance of my new friend Boo Hewerdine. An old friend, Mattie Foulds will produce and engineer at Castlesound studios. All of these factors, combined, lead me to believe this album will be a personal favourite for me, and hopefully you too.

Obviously these are strange, groundless times for all of us. At this exact moment I have a kickstarter campaign active. Whilst I have been fortunate enough to finance my recording up until this point, I was dependent on tours which no longer exist to pay the studio and musicians involved in Dreamweaver. This kickstarter campaign is how we can make this album in this current reality. I have various things I can offer as part of the campaign that include;

Livestream performance***Previously unreleased material***Previews of Dreamweaver***House Concerts***One on One songwriting sessions***Handwritten Lyrics***

If any of these interest you, please consider checking out the kickstarter page and contributing to the journey of this gentle boat on the rocky sea.

Thank you thank you xx
